Task: Comment on the significance of chapter five of Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein"
Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is an intriguing and disturbing novel, which compels you to become torn between passion, misery, dread, remorse and horror. The story of Victor Frankenstein's thirst for knowledge and his greatest creation goes against his own beliefs. Victor Frankenstein was so disgusted by his creation that he abandoned his work and his Monster. The Monster is shunned by society yet he still wants and needs love, and acceptance. The Monster's life of loneliness and isolation drives him to despair, which results in him seeking revenge for his lie of misery. The pitiful creature can only live in places where other people do not go, resulting in total isolation. Victor is tortured by his feelings and the knowledge of hat he has done, and he eventually sets out to correct his wrong doings. In chapter five Victor brings his creation to life, and Mary Shelly shows how proud he is of himself, until he realises that he has created what he sees as a monster. This sets the tone for the rest
